Meghan McCain and Behar Argue Over The 'Normalization' Of Democratic Socialism On 'The View'


Meghan McCain and Joy Behar clashed over the rise of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and 'normalization' of democratic socialism on Tuesday's edition of ABC's The View. McCain said she hopes Democrats run on the democratic socialism platform because they will "lose spectacularly."

"At a certain point, you run out of spending other people's money," McCain, quoting Margaret Thatcher, said.

The conversation got so heated that host and moderator Whoopi Goldberg had to step in to stop the two talking over each other.

Behar cited several Scandinavian countries as proof that socialism does work.

"Comparing America to a small country in Europe is delusional," McCain responded.

Behar argued that the Trump tax cut was only helpful for a certain group of people and not those in the middle class or below.

"If you don't give that money to them, what happens to that money? Better school. Better post office," she argued.

The two began to talk over each other again leading to the end of the segment.
